ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Intense, exhilarating, out-of-this-world.

Here is music of the future captured, manipulated and delivered via a computer-enhanced acoustic grand piano.

This is not synthesizer music. This music is bionic: real performers on real piano with a computer assist.

The rich sounds of a grand piano are beautifully recorded and presented.

Following in a long line of composers who have explored the possibilities of music written and/or performed on mechanically-driven pianos, including such luminaries as George Antheil, George Gershwin, and Conlon Nancarrow, Igor Korneitchouk has taken the idea into the digital age.

Helping him take it there are a group of performers whose taste and skill help bring the music alive. Steven Schick on marimba, Mary Barranger on piano, Ed Harkins on trumpet, James Romeo on soprano saxophone, and George Svoboda on classical guitar.

BIO: IGOR KORNEITCHOUK, born in Madrid, Spain, 1956, of Russian and German descent, emigrated to the U.S. at the age of three. A founding member of the performance art group touch me hear, he is interested in exploring the boundaries between music, technology, nature, performance and audience participation. He received his Bachelor's and Master's degrees in composition from the Cleveland Institute of Music and a Ph.D. in composition from the University of California, San Diego. In 1989 he received a NEH fellowship to study Jazz at Yale University. Along with this Old King Cole disc, Korneitchouk's wide range of musical output is represented on several other recordings released by Old King Cole Productions, MMC, and Aucourant Recordings. American Record Guide calls his duo for prepared violins "cutting edge... handled with a good sense of dramatic timing."
